In an attempt to clear the air on the reports on his differences with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minsiter Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that his relation with Modi was too sacred, emotional and deep” and that he would ensure it is never spoilt even if he is “personally harmed”.
“Let me tell you that in the past one-and-a-half years, our relationship has grown quite deep…. Those who are speculating about our relationship are totally unaware of its depth”, said Rajnath Singh.
“It is too sacred, emotional and deep to let anything spoil it. I will not let this happen even if I am personally harmed. You see, in my public life, credibility is the only capital I have earned. And I am determined not to fritter it away and lead the life of an animal (pashuvat jeevan jeena sweekar nahin)”, said the Home Minister.
“If I have established a deep personal and emotional bond with a certain individual, I cannot think of harming him or her in any way. I cannot commit the sin of harming someone close to me simply because I have developed some differences with that person. This is not my politics”, added Mr Singh.
